I was wondering if it's possible to simultaneously save a document that I'm working on to two different folders? Ie. Save it in My Documents and also create a backup file.

You would have to save the document to different folders separately, it is not possible to do do simultaneously.

From what I have seen, this is not possible from any application. You maybe able to create a little program (apple script, shell script, etc.) to do what you want.
